about

For anyone who ever saw Hilary in the mirror: you are beautiful, you're just enough and you probably don't need a silly song to tell you so but thought I'd give it a bash anyway.

lyrics

Dear Hilary I know you think you're hated but you're misunderstood
Dear Hilary I know you change your body just to try and change your mind for good
"It's a good idea" that's what you want to hear when you're surrounded by your minions of 'yes' men.
So dear, I will be cavalier and say "If you don't change now, then when?
It's the fear of recollecting, drying tears in the mirror in the morning sun.
It's the fear of facing your own face when you can't bear to look without your makeup on.
So yes it's tough
and guess what, you're just enough
and guess what, you've never cracked a mirror love.

Dear Hilary you're painting on a smile but you're still the darkest blue
I see beneath the deep veneer, and I look a hell of a lot like you
So take it all off and shimmy what you've got, fill your head box with loving care.
We were born to die, not shine in formaldehyde in our underwear.

And there's a sinking in my stomach when I think you might be hung up on the same as me
Looking at each other in the mirror, we're the boss of who we want to be

So yes it's tough
and guess what, you're just enough
and guess what you've never cracked a mirror love

It's the fear of recollecting drying tears in the mirror in the morning sun
It's the fear of facing your own face when you don't dare to look without your makeup on

So yes it's rough,
but guess what, you're just enough
and INSIDE IS THE STUFF
THE GOOD MAKEUP YOU'RE MADE OF
and guess what, you've never cracked a mirror love
